The Green New Deal has galvanised a generation in the global north who call for green jobs and training to rapidly decarbonise society. Its aims are ambitious and radical. But to address the interrelated climate, covid-19 and capitalist crises we must go beyond the national-level. Join us for a two part workshop to discuss the conditions for a globally just Green New Deal and explore how we can build it together, taking leadership from voices in the Global South who have long called for holistic and systemic change.

In part 2 of this series we will explore how Nationalist movements to ‘take back control’ promote neoliberal economics based on extraction and privatisation. Globally, they are enabling a race to the bottom on worker’s rights, climate, environmental and food standards. Borders are entrenched and historic injustices ignored. This workshop asks what transnational solidarity and action looks like in this context and how we can build collective power so that new worlds emerge?
